To Noah's Birth Mom on Mother's Day

I never got the chance to thank you for the little boy we share. For the trust your heart had that strangers could love your son with the same intensity that you do. Thank you for giving him all that he needed to get started in this beautiful world. Noah came to us brimming with love, and I know it was from you. I know you would be very proud of him today.

I wish there was a way for you to meet him, to see his smile, the way his face lights up and his eyes sparkle. The little dimple in his chin. The brilliance of his hazel eyes. They are the same colour as his big brother's... we're told he got them from you. I wonder if he has your laugh, your sense of humour, your personality.

I hope you know that the son we share is loved beyond measure. That he knows his story; that somewhere, his birth mother is thinking about him, and loving him. We're here, too. Thinking about you today and wishing you love and peace, wherever you might be. 

Happy Mother's Day.
